11. Now open the numbered folder that is the same edition as your currently installed Vista edition, and navigate to the Windows\System32 folder. You can now select and extract the system files that you need to your desktop to use to copy and replace your missing or corrupted system files in your currently installed Vista. (See screenshot below)​
NOTE: You may need to take ownership and "Allow" your account "Full Control" of the file in your current installation before you will be allowed to replace it with the extacted copy.​

That's it,

Yes, I use it all the time - great for checking back what you have included in the various .wims e.g. when making boot rescue discs.

Hello Poolwizard,

Using a Recovery Disc would be why then. It does not contain any installation files, and is only used to repair Windows 7 with. You would need a actual retail Vista installation disc for this tutorial to be able to extract Vista system files from. :(

Sorry,
Shawn

oh, i understand now, but, i think my pc is fixed lol, i took it out from the small area it's usually placed in and opened it up and had a look around inside, then tried to turn it on, amazingly it worked lol, so i'm keeping it outside the small area as i think my wall is nudging some wires or something, haha

by the way, thanks for helping me out

Hello J_Bone,

Did you take ownership and "Allow" your account "Full Control" of the file that you are trying to replace before copying and pasting the replacement?

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Ya, it wasn't allowing me to take "Full Control". After a bit of persistence, I got it. Now it say's this...



So, is there a way to replace these files wile Windows is running?

Hello Roger,

Nar, you can do the tutorial directly with only your Vista installation DVD. You'll just be opening and extracting the files on the DVD with 7-Zip. :)
